CONTIGO is a waltz with family and tradition, close to the South Texas border. While the Alamo has been designated by the United Nations as a World Heritage site, equally noteworthy is the cultural heritage in the lower Rio Grande Valley. CONTIGO is a Sunday afternoon in San Antonio and a weekend at a conjunto music festival in San Benito. The project is based on a song written by one of the pioneers of conjunto music, Don Santiago Jiménez. His son, Santiago Jiménez, Jr., performs it in this film.
